Poster Rating: C / B / C+ (5)

Review: (#1) This design is difficult to see, especially in theaters where posters aren’t always given the best lighting. It’s also not very dynamic, which means it might not catch your attention even if it was lit properly. (#2) This is a bit more inventive than a lot of modern designs, which gives it some style points. (#3-#7) These character designs don’t seem necessary. Yes, each features a slightly different pose and each has a different tagline that may or may not correspond to the person depicted, but you have to read all of them to get any idea of what the film’s about and even then you could be wrong.

Trailer Rating: B+

Review: It has a very creepy vibe that plays well as the trailer progresses. There’s a mystery involved and the audience is curious to figure out what’s going on, but there’s no relief making it a perfect sales tool.
